Hey, shouldn't she pay for a second passenger ticket too
Voodoo head found in air luggage

FORT LAUDERDALE, Feb. 11 (UPI) — U.S. immigration officials have arrested a Haitian woman in Florida after airport screeners found a human head in her luggage.

Myrlene Severe, 30, has been charged with failing to declare the head on a customs form and transporting "hazardous material," the BBC said.

Severe said that the head was to ward off evil sprits, officials said.

She was stopped at the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport on a flight from Cap Haitien in north Haiti.

"Severe stated that she had obtained the package, which contained a human head, from a male in Haiti for use as part of her voodoo beliefs," the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
